Jeanne would like to let you know that her work here is done. She received a call, a sort of an offer you can’t refuse, for an appointment from which she will not be returning. This assignment comes with a reunion with family and friends she has not seen in a long time. Her new mission takes her to a wonderful place where she will be socializing, quilting, gardening, and reading to her heart’s content. Laughter and love are guaranteed. Food is delicious and you never gain an ounce. She left detailed instructions for her family and friends to celebrate her mission here, which has now been completed.
